FOOD AND WINE
Thanks to the diversity of the area, every territory of this region has its own characteristics and products. Talking about typical characteristics, apples are one of the first example coming to our minds. This fruit grows in many cultivations, but the most known place is still the Val di Non, and it’s always here that we can find an other famous product: the Trentingrana, a kind of cheese really close to the Grana Padano family. Other cheeses from Trentino are Asiago, Vezzena, Fontal, Puzzone from Moena, Spressa from Val Rendena, ricotta and mascarpone. You can visit many alpine cottages, where those who have chosen this simple and natural lifestyle will make you discover the area. But there aren’t just apples and cheeses. In Trentino you can find other local products, such as chestnut and rhododendron honey, oil from olive trees on the Lake Garda shores, speck, salted meat, flavored lard, luganega seasoned, Mortandela from Val di Non and, last but not least, wine, grappa and fruit’s distillates.
